JP McManus owned RED JACK wins the €100,000 Tattersalls Ireland George Mernagh Memorial Bumper

Derby Sale

The valuable €100,000 Tattersalls Ireland George Mernagh Memorial Sales Bumper went to post on the opening day of the Fairyhouse Easter Festival. Heading the market was the Noel Meade trained and JP McManus owned RED JACK, a €23,000 purchase at the 2016 Derby Sale and who won impressively on his bumper debut a Naas, just 200 days after the fall of the hammer. Favouritism was justified for the son of Mahler as he cleared from the rest of the field in the closing stages of the race and won comfortably in front of Gordon Elliott's Dinons in second and the Willie Mullins trained Special Ted finishing in third.
